Don't Waste your Time on Training

By Martin Schaeferle | October 02, 2012

How many times have you heard people say, "I am definitely not going to waste my time going to that instructor led class" or "that self study training is a waste of time, not for me"? People learn in different ways and therefore there is never only one way to learn. Since I am in the IT learning business and have been for a long time, I have heard many companies talk about how they are the best, their video training is the best, they come out with cutting edge content the quickest, they have the best experts, yata, yata , yata. Make sure you assess what you need before buying developer training, or it may be a complete waste of your time.

There are many questions you need to answer, and the best way to address them is to prioritize them and then select based upon that. In the end, I suggest you select training material that covers most, if not all, of your needs.
